Kate Winslet's Reaction to Celine Dion's 'Titanic' Hit
Kate Winslet's reaction to hearing Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" shows the actress isn't a fan of the massive single from "Titanic," although she has fond memories of making the film and says the new 3D version is "spectacular."
"I wish I could say, 'Oh listen, everybody! It's the Celine Dion song!' But I don't," Winslet told MTV News as she promoted the release of "Titanic 3D." "I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll."
"It's thrilling for people to surprise me with the Celine Dion song," she said, making air quotes for the word "surprise."
She noted that "every time" she goes into a bar or restaurant with a pianist the tune changes to the song.
On one Italian talk show, she was urged to sing the song and after several attempts, people at the show could not convince her to do it.
"They're like, 'Oh no, come on it will be funny.' No it won't be funny. At all. And I'm not going to," she recalls saying.
When she steps on a boat or ship, people often ask her to reenact a scene from the film at where she was at the front of the ship with co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. She notes her reaction to requests for a reenactment.
"Oh yeah! Oh, that one! Oh, don't worry, it's my party piece. Sure, come on up, bring your granny," she jokes.
But she maintains that she still can talk about the film "with great joy because it is fun to talk about it, and I do have loads of funny stories and I'm also able to see that a whole new generation of people are going to get to experience all of it on the big screen and that is great," she says.
About the 3D re-release, she says "it does look amazing. And my children are going to get to see it for the first time.
"The only negatives are, that if I make them, what's negative about it, really nothing at all. It's great. It looks spectacular and the experience, actually of watching it, it is completely different ... it's much more present. It's different. It's bigger, if you can believe that. But it is. You really do feel like you're in it."
